BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – Be careful driving today. At mile marker 42.7 on Interstate 78, the exit for Connell Corporate Park, a driver hit a tree, causing it to fall into the roadway.

Deputy Fire Chief Jim Hopkins reported that the driver was not seriously injured, but firefighters needed to use a chain saw to cut up the tree so they could remove it from the roadway.

Firefighters had just recently cleared up another accident on eastbound Interstate 78, in which four people were injured and a dog died.
